I received an economic education, in 2007 I entered the graduate school of Fineс, but my scientific work quickly started to bore me. Work in communication fascinated me much more. My first serious work was the animated project “Smeshariki”, then the SOGAZ insurance company. After 9 years of working in serious corporate projects, I wanted freedom and creativity: I went to the National Opera Center, which was engaged in organizing tours of world-famous musicians. And then, unexpectedly, I appeared in the cultural editorial office of the 100 TV channel in the project of Sasha Malich “ArtTV”.

Work on television was a turning point for me and an important phase in my life. I realized that professionally I want to do exclusively what I like doing. Then (and till now nothing has changed) I had 2 passions: television and cooking. And I decided to get a second education related to the restaurant business.

For a long time I have been looking closely at various European schools, some were too expensive, some did not fit me for other reasons. I decided to ask Thomas Knoll for advice, and he sent me to the newly opened SWISSAM. And do you know what? It was a very good year! I met wonderful people who became my teachers and friends, like-minded people. We are now colleagues with some of them in the restaurant group DreamTeam Burov and Kokkov, where I am doing external projects and catering.
